-Lower A-Arm Hardware
Lighten up the front of your 93-02 F-Body with the Midwest Chassis Stage 3 Front Kit. We use factory mounting locations and geometry on our front suspension parts to ensure a clean and easy install.
K-member: The standard MWC K-member with LS/LT stands will accept a 5” downpipe on the passenger side. The driver side will accept a 3.5” downpipe when using the factory power rack (or 4” downpipe if converted to manual rack). The turbo version is designed for cars that are running factory air conditioning to allow a 4” downpipe on the driver side. K-members are built standard with mild steel, but we offer the option to upgrade to chromoly (please call to order). Due to the more brittle nature of chromoly we do not suggest them for street use.
Lower A-Arms: We offer 3 styles of lower a-arms to meet your suspension needs. The one-piece arm is a factory replacement style with the shock mounting option of either a bearing or factory t-bar. The two-piece arm is geared more towards performance, but still uses the factory spindle. If the two-piece arm is selected, the k-member is built with hole mounts (vs the factory style slots) to help keep precise alignment. Please note that the two-piece arm requires use of a wheel 6” wide or less.
Manual rack kit: If you’re looking to switch from power to manual steering this kit has everything needed for the conversion. When ordered at the time of k-member purchase, the k-member is built for the manual rack mounting to eliminate the additional weight of needing conversion brackets. Installation of the MWC bumpsteer kit is a breeze with the feature of tapered spindle adaptors that do not require drilling a large 5/8 hole like others on the market. Simply ream the top half of the tie rod end hole with a 1/2” drill. No welding and no modifications to the steering rack are needed. The manual rack kit includes: rack, steering shaft, and bumpsteer kit
Clevis Mount or A-Arm Bracket: Either option will allow the conversion of a front shock from factory style upper stud mount to bearing mount. The clevis mount option is a smaller bracket that bolts in place of the factory upper shock stud location and works with factory or aftermarket upper a-arms. The a-arm bracket option can be used with factory or aftermarket upper arms and have a built-in bearing mount, but when used with tube style aftermarket upper a-arms the bracket has 2 mounting positions for adjustable front suspension geometry. Factory upper arms still bolt up to the a-arm bracket, but will need to be clearanced and will not be able to use the adjustable mounting feature.
Crusader Shock Upgrade: The Crusader upgrade is a more aggressive shock line from Viking that gives an additional 3 rebound settings over the Warrior line, and allows for valving changes that can be done at home. Please note that due to the more aggressive nature of the Crusader line, these are not advised for daily driven/street driving applications. This upgrade is for the Crusader double adjustable, please call for triple adjustable.
